I had spinal fusion surgery in 2019 from Dr. Smith. I was personally devastated. As an extremely active individual, I thought my life was over. Going into 2023, I’m in better physical shape than anytime in my life. As an avid cyclist I ride 100 plus miles harder and faster than anyone I know. I ski. I work out. I’ve had ZERO issues. If you ever want a pro bono testimonial I’m all in. Dr. Smith and team literally saved my life.
Thank you for truly saving my life on March 30, 2022. The pain I had was almost too over bearing for me that it sent me into a depression that was changing my whole life and not for the better. You and your staff and the entire hospital, treated me like a VIP and I’m eternally grateful that it all started with you, your wonderful PAs and your God blessed talents.
Approximately one year ago, Dr. Jeremy Smith performed my 10th back surgery after nine surgeries with other orthopedic surgeons. The lumbar fusion that you, Dr. Smith, performed was by far the most extensive surgeries yet. The results so far is that I’m still experiencing pain, mild compared to the pain I was experiencing before the surgery. My back is still going through a state of recovery and that the process of healing is tolerable. Dr. Smith, I thank you for giving me the relief to be able to enjoy a quality of life that I didn’t have before the surgery you performed.
On April 24, 2023, Dr. Smith performed a hemilaminectomy and decompression surgery on me. Additionally, he removed a very large facet cyst. He had to perform a partial hemifacetectomy to excise it due to its size.
During my initial visit, we discussed my options and he instilled confidence in me. I left that visit with the conviction that he could resolve my issues. Today, I am going in for my second post-operative follow-up. I have been pain-free for weeks.
Dr. Smith and his entire team have provided me with extraordinary medical care and each team member seemed genuinely concerned about my well-being. I could not have asked for a better experience so far.
Dr. Smith is to be commended for his work and for assembling an outstanding team of caregivers. I cannot thank them enough, they have changed my life
I am grateful every day for the care that I received from St. Joseph’s Hospital & staff. The skill and care received from my orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Jeremy Smith, as well as his highly skilled staff, was outstanding.
My long hospitalization was a challenge to me and the staff. I am so appreciative of the positive outcome.
